...I want to apologise, as a Cypriot, (and as a Citizen of the World) for such ignorant behaviour.
My hope is that the President will not allow this to continue, that he will send a strong message as the representative of all Cypriots, this is not the toughness one expects from such a Ministry in times as tough as these, this is going too far. You do not have to be "Greek" to be Cypriot, or even "Greek Cypriot" for that matter, "Turkish Cypriots" are not everyone else so to speak, Muslim or not.
...(Even if Cyprus supports Hellenism) As Citizens we stand together to defend the Universal Principals on which our Individual Rights are based. Cyprus, the Republic of Cyprus, has one Flag, not two three or four. As things are based right now, if anything, anyone who is not, Turkish Cypriot living in the illegally occupied territory north of the Green Line, are the so called “Greek Cypriots”, even Turkish Cypriots who declare their primary residency within the Republic, are Greek Cypriots; just take a look at the electoral roles (for the last (EU) elections), and how Citizens are are/were treated.
...and 64 years ago, why was it a mistake for these people to have been classed “Greek Cypriot”, what is it that can be identified as an improvement to their Liberty as Citizens, by the label, “Turkish Cypriot”, now; is it Mdme. Shakalli, or the Minister, who should offer their resignation?
